This book was fantastic!
As soon as this book arrived, I started reading it. I read it in two sessions and would have read it in one go if it wasn't for other things getting in the way, such as eating and sleeping.

A sympathetic, engrossing read with loads of photos and definetly highly recommended!

There is a booklet inside detailing all the films the clips come from, with a short synopsis and lots of photos and pictures of the posters. There is a good five minute-ish long clip from each film up to 1978 - each one has the theme music, incidental music and the most famous clips and sections of dialogue from each film. They are grouped into sections such as… Read more
